Kopernik, founded in September 2009, is a technology marketplace for the developing world, connecting life-changing technologies, people in need of technology and funders. Kopernik projects are currently on-going in Timor-Leste, Indonesia and India.
2. Kopernik Fellowship
A Kopernik fellowship provides a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial individuals of the highest calibre and potential to work with our partner NGOs and assist with the implementation and monitoring of projects that disseminate appropriate technologies.
3. Fellowship Tasks
Kopernik fellows typically undertake the following tasks:
● Ensure timely implementation of Kopernik projects, in close collaboration with the technology seeker (local organisation)
● Collect end user feedback on the technology
● Conduct rapid impact assessment, measuring the changes in people’s lives caused by the introduction of technology
● Write a weekly report, on the fellow’s day-to-day life and Kopernik related activities, to be posted on Kopernik’s blog
● Document Kopernik’s work using photos and videos
Kopernik is accepting applications for Kopernik Fellows on a rolling basis.
A candidate should have a Bachelor's degree and previous experience in developing countries. Appropriate technology experience and local language skills are a huge plus. A minimum of a two-month full time commitment is required. Positions are unpaid.
6. Financial assistance
The Kopernik Fellow is an unpaid position. However, Kopernik will partially cover the cost of travel, as well as expenses directly related to Kopernik activities.
